ABSTRACT
This paper presents the change detection analysis of two multispectral datasets for the Bostanlik District of Tashkent, Uzbekistan, using Landsat-5 TM data for 1989 and Landsat-8 OLI for 2017. Both supervised classification and maximum likelihood algorithms were utilized for the change detection analysis. Six land use classes were identified: snow cover, bare soil/rock, forest, waterbody, built-up areas and agriculture. The change detection technique showed that within 28 years, significant changes occurred in the classes of the forest, built-up areas, bare soil and snow cover. The presented results might be valuable for the government authorities and stakeholders for future land use planning activities.
